Go Texan Day: We want to see your office's getups

When I was a little girl, I knew when it was rodeo season ? not because I was patiently awaiting the deep-fried everything and playing with goats at the petting zoo, which I definitely was ? but because on the Friday before the rodeo rolled out, I was dressed Texan to a T. I'd have tiny cowboy boots with a matching hat and a bandana around my neck; and a few years, my mom handmade my Western wear. While I might not still have her as my personal clothier, she instilled the tradition in me just?

How to grow your communication skills

Human communication is complex, but the first thing that comes to mind when we hear the word ?communication? is often spoken or written words. However, the words we speak and hear are just one way we communicate, and some studies show that most of our communication takes place through other means. Humans communicate in many different ways, such as verbal, nonverbal, body language and artistic communication, which is through images or music. The way we communicate with people affects all aspects?

New Houston LGBT chamber of commerce forms

Houston has many different chambers of commerce that identify with different geographic regions and demographics. Beginning this spring, the LGBT community will have one as well. Roughly 3.3 percent of the Greater Houston area identifies as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender, according to a recent Gallup poll, but there is no chamber of commerce that represents and promotes LGBT-owned businesses, said Tammi Wallace, co-chair of the steering committee. "There's an LGBT chamber of commerce in?

At Day for Night, don't expect anything that courts the middle

On a gray day with rain in the forecast, the third annual Day for Night festival opened with defiant flamboyance. The event's aptly tagged Red Stage boasted Of Montreal early Saturday afternoon for a set that made no concessions to the weather. Ringleader Kevin Barnes showed up in a high piled blond wig and a floor-length red gown. And befitting a festival that proudly programs in a politically provocative way he strummed his guitar while some extras ran around the stage in police uniforms chasing a few guys wearing jumpsuits that represented human musculature minus the skin. This is not an event that aims for the middle. Mike Hadreas' Perfume Genius followed.

Thieves ho-ho-hoping people let their guards down for Christmas

Tis the season for scams, when people are sometimes at their most vulnerable. Law enforcement and business advocacy groups are warning Houston-area residents, in particular the elderly, to beware shady helpers and avoid questionable purchases during the holiday season, because of an uptick in likely scams. "I would say the Number One problem is multi-tasking," said Dan Parsons, president of the Better Business Bureau of Greater Houston and South Texas. As shoppers are hurried for gifts and making purchases in person and online, they are susceptible to thieves looking to break into cars, steal valuable personal information from fraudulent websites or prey on people traveling to malls and other spots.

ATM heists hit fifth Houston hotel in a week

A group of masked thieves has lifted ATMs from five Houston hotels in a week, including a heist during which one robber showed a machete to Marriott Hotel employees, police said. Lt. Cathy Richards, of the Houston Police Department's robbery division, said the group has so far targeted ATMs that are not secured to floors or walls, allowing them to finish their heists in under three minutes. Witnesses have said the group has ranged between four and eight men. "These guys go straight in the front door and out the front door," she said at a press conference Thursday. "They target these hotels in the middle of the night when there is low visibility.

State laws ineffective in dealing with mug shot websites

Mike Anderson was an 18-year-old freshman at Texas State University when he was busted with less than a gram of weed. Police arrested him, took his mug shot, and he spent the night in jail. The legal consequences for being caught with such a small amount of marijuana - just enough for a joint or two - were minimal, but expensive. Prosecutors offered to drop the charges if he attended a drug program and did community service, and once he turned 21, he could get the record of his arrest expunged for about $500, wiping the history of his arrest from public view. "After I got it expunged I thought it was pretty much a done deal," he said of the order granted earlier this year.

Democrats' field growing crowded as filing for 2018 races ends Monday

It happened at lunch in the eighth grade. Andrew White admits he threw the piece of broccoli and hit the wrong kid, setting off an epic food fight that got him and many of his classmates an in-school suspension for several days. Three decades later, White, now 45 and a successful Houston entrepreneur, is running for governor as a conservative, pro-life, pro-business, common sense Democrat, a contradiction in terms that has many of the party faithful girding for another fight, a political throwdown over the future of the Texas Democratic Party -- especially if White should be successful.
